how bad it was and probably some explanation that lies in whatever anger he had toward his mother or the school, whatever, the problem with that explanation, it's not going to explain why all these children had to be killed and any more than there's an explanation for september 11th, but it doesn't explain why the poor guy delivering bagels that day got killed for whatever the crazy cause was. >> and the same way, that was exactly my thought. it was so unfathomable on that day that so much hatred could drive men to hijack planes and drive them into the pentagon and shanksville-- >> there's a lot to this, jon. i was watching fox earlier and heard governor huckabee talk about evil and the fact that sometimes we can't confront the fact, there's just evil in the world. well, there is. on the other hand, there are also medical and scientific categories you can put this into that the final result is we don't understand this well
7:31 am
enough and anybody offering simple solutions to something like this is offering no solution. this is not a simple thing, it doesn't have a simple solution. a lot of things have to be looked at as we move through this because we're just not good at predicting this kind of behavior. we don't understand it yet. >> at the same time, the whole nation wants to wrap this community in a big hug and just embrace it. >> because the whole nation realizes it can happen to them. it could happen to newton-- newtown, connecticut, an idyllic community, it can happen anywhere in this country. it doesn't mean it's going to happen, doesn't mean it's a prevalent crime, it isn't. this is not the way most children, god forbid are going to be hurt or injured. other ways to get hurt or injured and we have to pay attention to. this is so horrific and so arbitrary it could happen to any one of us and all of us have this nightmare about our

children and that's why i think this whole country is together on this. >> and certainly those parents are going to be second guessing lots of decisions. >> i can't imagine, you know. >> and that's being a father and i can't imagine how you -- i couldn't imagine it during september 11th or many other times how you live with in, horrible. >> those answers are yet to come in the days ahead. we are going to continue our conversation with mayor guiliani in just a bit and continuing coverage of the aftermath of the tragedy in newtown, connecticut just ahead. get married, have a couple of kids, [ children laughing ] move to the country, and live a long, happy life together where they almost never fight about money. [ dog barks ] because right after they get married, they'll find some retirement people who are paid on salary, not commission. they'll get straightforward guidance and be able to focus on other things, like each other, which isn't rocket science.

>> hi, everybody, thank you for joining us on fox news on our special coverage this saturday of the murders that happened in newtown, connecticut. newtown, 60 miles from new york city, a commuter town in many ways, to the big city of manhattan, but a community all its own, a small community
7:37 am
that many of us probably didn't know too much about yesterday until we got the news of the shooting and exactly what happened at sandy hook elementary school. at this point we probably all feel a little bit connected to this community. it's something that the president talked about yesterday and the president getting very emotional while making a statement at the white house saying we've endured too many of these incidents over the last few years and every time he learns the news he reacts not as a president, but as a parent. let's listen to the president. >> i know there's not a parent in america who doesn't feel the same overwhelming grief that i do. the majority of those who died today were children, beautiful little kids between the ages and five and ten years old.
7:38 am
they had their entire lives ahead of them. birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of gone, among the fallen were teachers, men and women who devoted their lives helping hour children fulfill their dreams, so, our hearts are broken today. for the parents, and grandparents, sisters and brothers of these little children, and for the families of the adults who were lost. >> the president emotional yesterday, speaking about the shooting. the president's weekly media message today also touching on the school massacre and the president says the countries has a heart heavy with hurt and republicans canceled the weekly address saying they wanted the president to speak for the the entire nation at
7:39 am
this time of mourning. jon? >> we just got a nod of ascent from former new york city mayor rudy guiliani. that's the right thing to do. >> absolutely, i think the president said it just perfectly and my heart goes out to him, now, i remember september 11th right afterwards having to do two or three press conferences and hardest thing to do was not to cry and i found out that one of my friend's wife had died and i actually stood behind somebody so nobody would see me crying, but it's very, very hard to not feel the emotion of something like this, all of us being parents and even ones that aren't parents, they're aunts or uncles, they understand children and understand what it means to have the innocent little children just mowed down in an absolutely incomprehensible fact and how does somebody stand in front of a classroom and kill a five or six-year-old. it completely is impossible
7:40 am
for any vaguely normal person to understand that. >> and this school apparently had done everything right. aisle, you cannot, you cannot-- even if they had turned the school into a fortress and had the schools locked. >> in a community like that, they did more in a community like that than you would generally do. this is a community with one violent crime. this isn't even a dangerous a suburban or urban area and they had more security than any facts would suggest. the guy basically sounds like shot his way in. you could say, well, should they have had an armed police officer there? nothing in the past suggested they have an armed police officer there. having an armed police officer in the school is somewhat disconcerting for the children and who is to say he wouldn't have shot the armed police officer. he did a pretty good job of shooting the principal. this kid looks two things about him, looks like he knew how to shoot, and very good
7:41 am
shooting, horrific shooting, but good shooting in a very short period of time and looks like he was just, very disturbed, a smart kid, a kid who had an intellect. >> that's what everybody said. >> that's a dangerous killer. >> he was also described as a gamer. >> dangerous-- >> one immersed in some the video games which can be horrifically violent and i think as much as anything-- >> this is a very dangerous killer when you put all of those elements together. >> mayor guiliani, it's good to have you here to share your thoughts and console the nation in the same way as 9/11. >> there are a lot of things that can be done about this. the only thing is, i urge don't focus on a simplistic solution, this is not a simplistic problem, not solved easily. >> former mayor rudy guiliani, jenna. >> we struggle with the right words pan a lot of us are trying to put words to the story and i tell the viewers what we know. this is the murder of our most
7:42 am
innocent and it deserves the kind of respect today as we continue to learn more about the deadly school shooting in this town, in newtown, connecticut. we have a look back at yesterday's events as they unfolded. >> evil visited this community today. a call came in to dispatch and police of raced to the school. >> the children obviously were very shaken, they were crying in the closet and when they were level, police made them hold on to hands and close their eyes. >> they had their entire lives ahead of them, birthdays, graduatio graduations, weddings, kids of their own.
7:43 am
>> the gym teacher directed us to stay against the wall and everybody started kind of panicking. >> there's no words, it's sheer terror. >> it doesn't seem real, it just does not team it's possible. >> we all huddled and i kept hearing these booming noises. >> i just all of our moms are networking, trying to figure out what's going on. >> the kids were terrified. they were terrified. they had just witnessed something and they were, they were terrified. >> it's -- it's the most i've ever been to. >> may god blessed victims and in the words of the scriptures, feel the broken hearted and bind up their wounds. >> the u.s. flag now flying at half staff across the country, and the president has ordered
